The Second Edition, Corrected and Enlarged. Glasgow: Foulis Press, 1766. Krown & Spellman retail: $175. 8vo. a-b8,A-M8. xxx, [2], 191p. 1/2 ruled calf over marbled boards. Bookplate of the Revd.Wm. H. King. Second Edition. From the Krown & Spellman Collection. Lord Hailes 1726-1792, Scottish judge and antiquarian. "Scarcely a year passed without one, and often two or three, publications from the indefatigable pen of Hailes; but many of these are translations, small tracts, or short biographical sketches. His publications, almost without exception, related to the early antiquities of Christianity, which he deemed the best defence against the sceptical tendencies of the age, or to the antiquities and history of Scotland, which before his time had been critically examined by scarcely any writer."
